The American College of Physicians (ACP), on behalf of internal medicine physicians (internists) and related subspecialists, says that statements, including by President Trump, falsely accusing physicians of attributing deaths to COVID-19 for financial gain represent a reprehensible attack on physicians’ ethics and professionalism.

Internists and other frontline physicians play an essential role in caring for patients and saving lives during this global public health emergency, often without sufficient personal protective equipment and while putting their own lives at risk. To suggest that physicians would misstate the cause of death for financial gain is false, and represents a reprehensible attack on our profession and ethics.

ACP notes that several recent studies suggest that the actual number of people who have died from COVID-19 is much higher than the terrible toll of 220,000 deaths officially attributed to the virus. Alleging that COVID-19 deaths instead are overcounted undermines the work by physicians and public health authorities to remind the public of the seriousness of the pandemic and to recommend steps to reduce transmission of the virus, cases, and deaths.

ACP has been aggressively advocating on behalf of internists and their patients during the COVID-19 pandemic to support their need for adequate PPE, for appropriate funding and payments to help sustain their practices so they can continue to provide patient care, and has called for following evidence-based science in fighting the pandemic. In reality, many internists and other physicians are struggling financially during this time but continue to put themselves and their families and loved ones at risk in the name of their profession and duty to their patients and communities.

Has any of us got it yet? My brother had a fever for a few days, and now he said just a sore throat and he’s tired.
I still need to go get my flu shot. My kids got it but I haven’t yet.

I got my flu shot last week. I felt like I had take too much cold medicine for like 2 minutes a few hours after the shot but that's that.

That's awesome. I got sick for a week from mine but that's because of my stupid fucking intestines. The flu shot destroys my stomach.

Fun fact about me: I get sinus infections on a somewhat reliable basis. Nothing massive, just massively inconvenient and a pain in the ass 2 - 3 times a year at most.

Got, what I think to be, my first one of the winter yesterday. Got COVID tested today and got some meds for the sinus jawn

you're still posting this fake news. Didn't you hear it's all a hoax. A democrat conspiracy. It's just an anti trump plot.


trump is tiny to match his character and uncapitalized because he hasn't earned that.
Did you just say that Trump has tiny character? Kano, your temper is out of control today.
